At CH2M, it starts with our purpose: laying the foundation for human progress by turning challenge into opportunity. But that’s just the beginning.
As a professional services firm tackling our clients’ toughest infrastructure and natural resource challenges with optimism and imagination, we’ve always approached our work a bit differently, driven by our purpose to pave the way for human progress.
If we zig when others zag or turn a problem upside-down to evaluate it from another angle, it’s because we’re looking for the most complete solution that returns value to our clients and stakeholders.
In 2016, we conducted a thoughtful, outside-in analysis to determine how we could operate and compete more effectively. We started first and foremost with our unwavering commitment to protect the health and safety of all stakeholders. We launched a global safety campaign where our management team, our employees and I reaffirmed our dedication to Target Zero. There’s absolutely nothing more important than the safety of our people.
As a part of our analysis, we reinforced our industry-leading position in sustainability and corporate citizenship. As one of the first firms in our sector to publish a sustainability report, we know our most significant achievements stem from the work we deliver for our clients. That’s why we elevated sustainability and citizenship as an integral part of our 2016 Integrated Summary Annual Report and for the first time, we included aggregate measures of improvement achieved for our top 100 clients, in addition to our internal achievements. Reflecting our record delivering sustainable solutions and exemplary citizenship, CH2M became the first professional services firm ever to be honored with the World Environment Center Gold Medal Award for International Corporate Achievement in Sustainable Development, demonstrating our global leadership in influencing and delivering progressive environmental, social and economic outcomes.
